The Valleyview nine is the most difficult course at the 27-hole Farmstead Golf & Country Club, which is located in northwest New Jersey approximately one hour from New York City. Small greens, tree-lined fairways, hilly terrain and out of bounds on seven of nine holes are among the reasons the Valleyview nine is a test. The Byron Phoebus design opened in 1979.

Crowded last Friday Sep 6 2013 PM

Tournament playing in between public outings made slow playing pace. Customers should be informed before selling tee times, so we can decide.

It's winter, the conditions are really good! It was wet so cart path only which I like because it gives me some exercise. It's winter & not crowded. Ran into 1 foursome that had no intention of allowing me to play through. Had to jump around ,but it all worked out. Greens in great shape. Price very reasonable.

Nice array of holes.

The course is always in good condition and is flat and easy to navigate your way around the course.

Farmstead Golf is a Hidden Gem

Farmstead is a well cared for course with 3 nine hole courses to play. Valeyview, Club, & Lake. All are challenging with Valleyview being surrounded with more woods requiring better accuracy. Tee boxes were in good shape and the pace of play was unrushed. There is a food stand with a variety of things to choose from. Only negative is they don't have a range to warm up prior to playing.
